The Mayan Riviera also known as The cancun and Maya Riviera abounds with exciting things to do. These "attractions" are spread out over a vast expanse of jungle and coastal shoreline. Costs for attractions are on par with attraction costs in both the USA and Canada so you can expect to spend the same for a day's outing, as you would there.

Regardless of where you are staying on the Mayan Riviera you will have to travel to any attraction you wish to visit. You can either use the services of a tour company [you can book excrusions on-line here] or you can travel to the attractions on your own. Scroll to the bottom of this page for transportation information.

We offer on-line booking for many of the attractions listed here. There are some smaller tour companies that do carry some of the destinations we do not, however if you are staying at a resort along the Mayan Riviera then you will only have access to the excrusions offered by what ever tour companies that are there, that rent space in the resort lobby.

In some cases you must provide your own transportation to some attraction destinations. These are generally the smaller venues and ones less traveled.

cancun History

Would you ever forget a stunning shoreline where the untamed jungle meets the crystal-blue Caribbean Sea? Well that's exactly what happened to cancun during colonial times.
 

Originally the cancun region was an important trade and religious hub for the ancient Mayas between 1000-1550 AD. You can still see the remnants of this prosperous era at the ruins of Tulum and the towns of Playa del Carmen, Xcaret, and Xel-Ha.
 

This prosperity waned after many wars and invasions before the Spaniards' arrival. After their arrival, the colonial government didn't see any economic need to develop the area. Lucky for us, the inadequate roads discouraged development of the area.
 

cancun slowly developed into a vacation destination with the popularity of Cozumel. Initially, people only came here to catch the ferry to the beautiful island, but they were quick to discover the natural beauty of the gateway to Cozumel.
 

Today, this splendid coastline of the far eastern Yucatan peninsula is a living museum to Mexico's cultural and natural heritage. Hundreds of kilometers of sugary shoreline boarder the quaint villages and vibrant reefs that make the cancun region a laid-back vacation destination. Divers are drawn to The Great Maya Reef which is the world's second largest reef system. Would-be spelunkers discover its underground river system complete with caves and cenotes. Nature lovers venture to the Biosphere Reserve. While the Indian Jones in us all explores the hundreds of magnificent archaeological sites of the Mayas.
 

Just venture 68 kilometers south of Cancun and explore the unique character and quiet beauty spanning from Punta Brava to Punta Allen

The cancun is one of the most fascinating destination spots in the world. Tropical beaches, ancient ruins, abundant marine and wildlife abound. The Great Mayan Reef is the largest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere. The cancun offers an unrivaled combination of high quality accommodations, relaxing beaches, and a wide diversity of shopping, dining, and nightlife. There are also a number of opportunities for travelers to learn about ancient cultures and visit timeless architectural ruins.



Playa Del Carmen, or "Playa" as the locals call it is about an hour's drive from the airport. Playa is the regional capital. It is a bustling beach town filled with excitement and unique experiences. You can enter one of the many beautiful restaurants for a healthy delicious sampling of Mexican or international cuisine. There are numerous jewelry stores and arts and crafts stores.



The beaches at Playa are excellent and perfect for children. You can catch the ferry to Cozumel where the snorkeling and diving is world famous. If you wish to snorkel there are some coral reefs just north of Contituyentes avenue.



Something not to be missed is the Xaman-Ha aviary. A colorful array of tropical birds including macaws, toucans, flamingos and parrots can be found here in their natural habitat. The botanical garden covers almost 4 acres and also contains cenotes. Cavernas Sache, a beautiful cavern filled with stalagmites and stalactites is also located in Xaman-Ha.



Puerto Adventuras is an exclusive resort community boasting the only full-service marina between Cancun and Belize. Cozy restaurants and interesting shops line the marina's edge. Sailboats, fishing charters and yachts anchor in its deep blue water. There are also many beautiful restaurants for a delicious Mexican or international cuisine. There are all the beach activities one would expect like windsurfing, snorkeling and ski-jets. You can also visit the Cedam Museum, which houses various artifacts from sunken ships along the reefs.



Akumal has beautiful beaches and is a perfect place to either stay local or use to launch numerous adventures. Many of the beaches are natural beaches however many have white sand areas for children and swimmers. This is a great place for snorkelers especially if you want to see sea turtles. Activities in the area include diving, snorkeling, game fishing and the Akumal Ecological Center.



There are two important places with the same name, the Mayan ruins and the town of Tulum. The town is small but has many restaurants, bars and hotels. There are some nice hotels in the area and many miles of white sandy beaches. Also the beach resorts are secluded and not as busy as Playa del Carmen. Tulum town is also close to the ruin sites of Coba and Muyil.



There is a small market and many little shops located downtown Playa del Carmen where you can purchase Mexican garments, authentic silver or any other crafts. There are also many shops and markets located downtown Cancun. Main malls and shopping centers are Plaza Caracol, Plaza Kukulkan, and Plaza Flamingo. The ride takes approximately 45 minutes



There are discos located at some of the hotels on the Mayan Coast and in Playa del Carmen. There are many restaurants and bars located downtown Cancun that can be reached by taxi or bus from the Mayan Sun Coast. Some famous places to visit downtown Cancun include: All Star Café, Coco Bongo, Christine, Dady'o, Hard Rock Café and Planet Hollywood.



A cancun vacation would be your unique experience!

cancun—where is it?
The cancun, also known as the Mayan Riviera is a 130 kilometer long stretch of Caribbean coastline that runs between the resort city of Cancun to the north, down to the Mayan ruins of Tulum at its southern end. The cancun is in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico's most eastern state on Mexico's most eastern body of land—the Yucatan Peninsula. The cancun is part of the Mexican Caribbean which describes the entire Caribbean coast of Mexico from Cancun down to Quintana Roo's capital city of Chetumal, and the southern border with Belize, Central America. The island of Cozumel, Mexico's largest island, is also part of the Mayan Riviera.
Getting around
Carretera (highway) 307 traverses the length of the cancun with roads shooting off at right angles to various beach side resorts, vacation communities, undeveloped beaches and lagoons. A few roads penetrate the jungle heading west to Mayan ruins, cenote freshwater pools and the state of Yucatan where Spanish Colonial towns wait to be discovered by the more adventurous traveler seeking the deeper culture of Mexico and the Maya. Yucatan state comprizes the western part of the Yucatan Peninsula and in many ways is a world apart from the cancun. The cancun~Mayan Riviera, together with the entire Yucatan Peninsula, are world class tropical destinations providing history, adventure and tropical luxury. And yet globaly, the Yucatan beyond Cancun, remains virtually unknown.


cancun, Mexico Hotels
Dive into a dazzling array of Cancun hotel deals on everything from all-inclusive resorts to adults-only getaways. Those glistening white sands of the Yucatan are lined with cheap Cancun hotels with sensational swimming pools to tempt you into this tropical playground of south-of-the-border delights.
